Radio Free Hipster Ep. 21: Meat & Potatoes

After a hectic (read: shitty) week, putting together this podcast was a noble diversion. The bulk of these songs are silly and borderline uplifting. As a result, I have to say that this is one of my favorite overall track lists in a while. I hope you dig it.

Right now I think I might have one more free-form ‘cast in me before I go back to themed eps, but I'll just have to see where I'm at come RFH 22. In the meantime, peep the freshness and let me know what you think.

Show Notes
Intro: Baddd Spellah (feat. Beefy) – “Radio Free Hipster Theme”
I'd take a bullet for either of these boys.

Track 1: Zealous1 (feat. Super Dragon X & Spontane) – “Double Dragon
Collaboc1de is well worth the time it'll take you to download it. Trust me.

Z's 1st interlude: “A collection of tracks that I am currently listening to.”
Which pretty much sums up every episode.

Track 2: Baddd Spellah - “Gawd Particles
This song contains the word penis .

Track 3: Mr. Door - “Video From NWNC @ Fuel
This song contains the word testicles .

Track 4: King of Pants - “Badd to Me
This song contains – even in its original, non-mash-up form – the word vagina .

Track 5: Datarock - “Computer Camp”
This song also contains the word penis . Oddly enough, all of this was purely coincidental. It wasn't until my final playback that I noticed this disturbing trend. Believe it or not, I had not planned to focus this set so firmly upon genitalia. I'm just sayin'.

Track 6: Stemage - “Brinstar
Stemage has a new (non-Metroid) album available. You should check it out.

Track 7: Ultraklystron - “Front to the Back (K-Beam Remix)”
Karl can rock the house. Rock the house indeed.

Track 8: MC Router - “Routerlicious”
Your little brother thinks I'm purdy / LAN parties signin' up to get a piece of this dirty nerdy.”

Z's 2 nd interlude: “It'll make you feel good.”
Well, it made me feel good.

Track 9: Oddioblender - “Lullaby of Cosmic Dust”
Odd's Gustuf Young is Dead is one of those disks I find myself going back to regularly. It's really got a lot to offer.

Track 10: Grandmaster Pink and Diabolik (feat. Dexy) - “The OC
When the show got cancelled , I actually felt a little bad for Pink and the boys. :(

Track 11: The OneUps - “Summers
Once again, let me plug the Game Music 4 All Music EXP comp. The line-up is outstanding!

Track 12: Commodore64 - “Dutch”
Just say yes.

Track 13: Mawatari Matsuko – “Hohoemi no Bakudan”
See? There's no way in hell I coulda said that!

Track 14: Stark Effect - “Bunny Rabbits, Satan, Cheese and Milk
There's more to Stark Effect than “mic in track” songs. Check it.

Z's final interlude: “I'll be sure to butcher some more Japanese in a later episode.”
My inability to pronounce words in any tongue is a constant source of amusement for me. I imagine you've come to expect it as well.
Track 15: MC Frontalot – “Secrets From the Future
Buy Front's new album here, or see him on tour and get it in person.
I'm still amused that I subconsciously themed a huge chunk of set one around brief references to naughty bits. How positively Freudian! ;)

Thanks for stopping by and being a party to my madness. I owe you one.

Please holler at me and let me know your thoughts on this episode. And, as always, your song suggestions and show ideas are welcomed and appreciated.

What is this? RFH on a Sunday? That's just wrong, Z.

Fortunately, I now have Stark's MIT tracks to mine while I'm toiling at work.

Z. said...

Yeah, the Nerdcore Top 10 project sort of threw shit off schedule.

If I’m not mistaken, Stark Effect also has an EP dedicated to dictionary pronunciation bots singing old standards. Good stuff.

MC said...

I think playing her song was an excellent b-day present for Sister J, Z^_^

Rai said...

XD Yuu Yuu Hakusho for the WIN!! <------ hardcore fan

Z. said...

Well happy belated birthday to nerdcore’s foremost she-furry! Had I realized it earlier, I woulda made an announcement on the show.

Though it’s no secret that I’m not much for anime, I’m a YYH fan myself, Rai. Hell, I actually *paid* for the soundtrack album. XD

Rai said...

Hee~ YuuHaku was the one series in the infintile days of Rai that made me feel so much better about being short and ill tempered. And Hiei green with eyes all over was hawt.

XD I still have wierd ass merchandise from YuuHaku.

As odd as sounds to say this now, with the songs I currently have out, Mawatari Matsuko's the one who proved to Rai that girls could sing ass kicking songs too~

Z. said...

I never really understood why folks loved anime OSTs until I heard the tracks from Cowboy Bebop and Yu Yu Hakusho. I can totally see that thematic, moody element in your work, Rai! :D

Steve said...

WOW. This is up to EP 21 already? Time flies!

Z. said...

Yup. My podcast is all growed up!
